2 Chronicles 4 - The Four Directions
It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and
three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and
three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them,
and all their hinder parts were inward.
2 Chronicles 4:4
The work of God never ceases to amaze me. There are two strong links between this verse from the
fourth chapter of 2 Chronicles and Spoke 4. Furthermore, the link is based on the meaning of the
Number 4! Truly there is no end to the depth of God's Wisdom.
The first link is based on the theme of the Four Directions, which are listed together in one and only
one verse of 2 Chronicles, which just happens to be the fourth verse of the fourth chapter,
as quoted above. This corresponds to their distribution in the Bible which is greatly
maximized on Spoke 4
(cf. [Spoke 4] > The Four Directions).
Here is a graph representing the distribution of all occurrences of the words north, east, west, or south
in the Bible:
The graph above displays the number of times any of one of the four directions is mentioned in each Book of the
Bible. The pattern
remains the same if we restrict the search to include only those verses that mention
all four directions. There
are exactly 12 such verses, four of which appear on Spoke 4:
The Fourth Verse of the Fourth Chapter of 2 Chronicles mentions the four directions in connection
with the placement of the Twelve Oxen in the Temple. To my amazement, it turns out that the
phrase ("twelve oxen") [Verify] appears only in one place outside the description of the
Temple in 2 Chronicles 4.4
and the parallel passage from I Kings. The astute reader should easily be able to guess where it is found.
Turning to the Fourth Book, we read (Numbers 7.1f):
And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle,
and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the
altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;
That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes
of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:
And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen;
a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

It would be a true KeyLink if we disregarded the parallel passages in I Kings.
